I think that disciplining of women (or lack thereof) is one of the main reasons for the social decay that the West finds itself in.
So this topic should be of interest to Muslim and non-Muslim alike.
The Question is:
Does Islam permit a man to hit his wife?
Of course, ….. But only if she doesn't do what she is told.
The beating must cease if the woman complies with her husband's demands.
Beating is also intended to be the last resort, behind verbal abuse and abandonment.
Muhammad, himself, is recorded as physically disciplining his favorite wife (from her own testimony) the child Aisha. It is not known how he treated his less-favored wives.
According to Sharia, a husband may strike his wife for any one of the following four reasons:
- She does not attempt to make herself beautiful for him (i.e. "let's herself go")
- She refuses to meet his sexual demands
- She leaves the house without his permission or a "legitimate reason"
- She neglects her religious duties
Any of these are also sufficient grounds for divorce.
In fact, there are even some radicals that are unhappy with the newest, and most Islamic of laws that has been passed in Afghanistan that will allow a Muslim man to assert his sexual rights over his wife.
In that, if a wife refuses sex with her husband, he may first beat her into submission. If that doesn’t work, he may then starve her.
“…Law will let Afghan husbands starve wives who withhold sex..”
Thankfully, we know that 90% of women in Afghanistan are lucky enough to have husbands that understand Allah’s laws and beat them into submission regularly, so the need to starve Muslim women on a large scale is probably not necessary:
In fact, according to the most learned of Islamic scholars, they all agree, that beating ones’ wife for withholding sex is not only allowed but encouraged (to help correct her rebellious behavior).
Let us look to the wise words of Sheikh Muhammed Salih Al-Munajjid, who runs the renowned and trusted site: Islamic Question and Answers (Islam Q & A).
At this site you will find his and other well known imams FATWAS on almost any question you may have as it pertains to Islam. However, the FATWA we are interested in, is in relation to beating a Muslim wife (or FEMALE SEX SLAVE) who does not submit to her Husband’s sexual demands.
Praise Allah! Another voice of Islamic reason when it comes to the duties of a husband to beat his errant wife, and the obligation for wives to submit to male domination.
In fact, this is also echoed by famed Australian Cleric Samir Abu Hamza, who aspouses the ETERNAL WILL of Allah, and prounces that it is :
OK to Beat Your Wife and Force Her to Have Sex!
Now, we must look at what is appropriate in terms of disciplining ones’ wife. (In the following post, I will give examples and information from scholars, imams, professors and religious authorities from throughout the Islamic world on this most important of topics.)
As stated, one must avoid the face, what could be the solution? The breasts of a woman / or girl are as tender as the testicles of a man, and even a light beating on the breasts, (especially the nipples), can be quite painful and is good for correcting a woman who has been disobedient.
When one does not know how to punish his wife, the clear answer is to follow the example of the Prophet Mohammad (pbuh), as he used this form of discipline with his child bride Aisha (his most beloved) on her breasts when she was about nine years of age. ( Muslim (4:2127) )
However, we must always remember the mercy that the Prophet Muhammed has provided believers when we consult the authentic hadiths:
In fact, with the Wisdom of Mohammad, Muslims know that if you flog (whip) your wife like a slave, you should wait for a day before having sexual intercourse with her. (SAHIH BUKHARI Volume 7, Number 132)
Also when in doubt, I recommend electrical cables as they are a tried and tested implement of Islamic discipline.
For more information on the culture of the electrical cable (as a tool for disciplining a Muslim wife), please see the following video.
In it, a radical woman is trying to argue against the DIVINE judgment of Allah and is explaining the findings of her Study into Islamic wife beating in five Muslims countries (and in each of those countries, seven random sample areas).
What she found, she has dubbed “ The Culture of the Electric Cable" ---as this was, throughout the Islamic world, the overwhelmingly preferred instrument of wife discipline by Muslim men.
Indeed, when following the laws of Islam the maintaining order in a Muslim home can usually be accomplished with physical discipline, however it is good to understand the obligations of a Muslim husband to correct the bad behavior of his wife.
In fact, maintaining discipline of one’s wife is very important, and there is no time when a Muslim man should allow himself to be negligent or lazy in this duty.
Thus, I am happy to report, that even women who are pregnant are not exempt from Allah’s ETERNAL will. And thankfully, the believers in Pakistan are showing their mercy by correcting their pregnant wives attitudes and behavior:
(1 million Pakistani women abused during pregnancy:
Expert LAHORE: Annually an estimated one million pregnant Pakistani women are
physically abused at least once during pregnancy by their partners.)
We know, according to the authentic hadiths, that according to the Prophet Muhammad, women are equal (in destroying a man's prayer) as a dog or a donkey. (Volume 1, Book 9, Number 490: Sahih Bukhari )
And any sane person knows that you must discipline dogs and donkeys, so why not your wives? This is what so-called Western “feminists” don’t seem to understand, and why they are most in need of Islamic discipline to correct their errant and poisonous opinions.
What these so-called “feminists” should do is educate themselves in Islam and understand their place in society. In fact, the information on their status in Islam, according to Allah has already been fully investigated by scholars and imams who know Allah’s ETERNAL plan for woman and their submission.
This was recently codified by The Council of Islamic Ideology (CII) in Pakistan.
The CII has declared the term ‘gender equality’, used in Section 7(a) of the National Commission for Status of Women Ordinance of 2000, ‘vague and un-Islamic’ and called for its repeal!
. I hope this post has been instructional for Muslims’ and Infidels (soon to be Muslim wone way or another) as well.
Also, Muslims please feel free to leave any useful information or tips, or instruments have you found work in maintain discipline of your wives.
I am sure that Muslim and Infidels alike are SATISFIED by the JUSTICE that is Islam and will strive to Beat their wives in the manner similar to that of the Apostle (or take their beating in the manner of the CHILD BRIDE Aisha).
